I’m a hunted woman, torn between my past and present, ripped apart by two warring families. Bishop's Landing is no longer safe for us. Ronan hides me in his own corner of the world. A place steeped in sin and shadow. The priests who raised him know his secrets.
If I'm not careful, they could come crashing down on us both. Because Ronan isn't the man I thought he was. He's someone else. An enemy I never saw coming.
Slow burning romance…
4 stars for - Broken Hearts - book two in the Hearts trilogy by M. O'Keefe. This book picks up right where book one - Stolen Hearts - left off so make sure you read that one first. This book is more of a slower pace with lots of angst and intriguing characters that keep you on your toes.
Ronan and Poppy are on the run to keep her safe and end up in Ireland - Ronan's homeland. They are living in close quarters and trying to figure out so many things least of all their feelings for each other. Poppy is coming into her own and voicing her opinions more which makes for an interesting dynamic, yet Ronan is a stoic as ever, but we get more glimpses as to why he is the way he is in this book. Once again, we are left on a crazy cliffhanger - the end is in sight for these two and I for one can't wait to see how it all plays out!
I just read this 2nd installment and cannot wait for the last one! Yikes, I’m on the edge of my seat. Poor Poppy, she wants her own life, sucked into a rabbit hole with no way out. Luckily for her, her savior/partner Ronan and now husband is in it to protect her or in it for his own selfish reasons. Either way this story is a must read.
Really enjoying Poppy & Ronan’s story
I really enjoyed the setting of this second book in the series, and seeing how Poppy and Ronan interacted with each other in it. We get some chapters from Ronan's POV in this one, which added an interesting element by revealing his thoughts about Poppy and his past. Poppy continues to grow and discover herself, and they of course have some more steamy encounters. I can see where some readers might find this book a little slow, and I can understand that and agree to a certain extent, but I really appreciated everything that was addressed and experienced before the action that came at the end. There is a big reveal that sets up a new stage for the third book, but I wouldn't really call it a cliffhanger. Looking forward to what happens for these two next.
